A blog post claiming that Health director-general Tan Sri Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah has resigned is fake news, says the Health Ministry.


In a Twitter post, the ministry shared a screenshot of the article which claimed that Dr Noor Hisham had stepped down from his post.

“Fake news. Do not spread or share,” the ministry tweeted on Friday (May 28).

This is not the first time the Health director-general has been the subject of such allegations.

On Feb 3, Dr Noor Hisham posted on Twitter about a viral claim on WhatsApp, alleging that he had resigned, calling it “another piece of fake news and misleading the public”. – The Star
